There's absolutely no stepping out of the house without a mask on these days.
Now that face coverings have officially become a part of our daily wear all thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, it's about time to update our wardrobes with these new essentials. Luckily for music fans, a bunch of their favorite bands and artists have dropped official merch to help them get through these tough times.
Don't forget, while these masks are super cool and eye-catching, they should not be used as medical devices or personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Be sure to wash and insert filters or surgical masks before use.
Check out the masks below.

Please understand that cloth face coverings are for personal use. They are neither medical devices nor personal protective equipment (“PPE”). For the avoidance of doubt, the use of cloth face coverings does not protect you against COVID-19, and is not intended to replace recommended measures to stop the community spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face.
Follow the latest advice of public health authorities – such as the world health organization (or who, see www.who.int) and U.S. Centers for disease control and prevention (or CDC, see www.cdc.gov), as well as local officials and your own health care professionals – about the use of facial coverings.
As of April 10, 2020, CDC notes the following with respect to cloth face coverings:
• Cloth face coverings are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators;
• Do not place on children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance;
• Wash routinely, depending on the frequency of use; and
• Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing and wash hands immediately after.
